Ox people are determined, strong, kind, diligent, industrious, and practical.
Known as the true workforce in the Chinese zodiac, an Ox will stick with a task, no matter how arduous and challenging, until the very end. They have phenomenal endurance and once they set their mind to something, nothing can stand in their way. They are kind-hearted and will always help someone who is in need, lending their great strength to a worthy cause.
On the negative side, the Ox can be stubborn and overly-persistent, especially if they do not get their way. They are very patient, but if pushed too far they can bring an entire house down. Ox people can take things a little too seriously at times and can have trouble seeing the funny side of things.
Career-wise, Ox people make good real estate agents, manufacturers, painters, interior designers and engineers. In fact, they excel at pretty much anything as they are determined and driven and put their best efforts into whatever they set their minds to. There is nothing half-hearted about an Ox person’s efforts; if they do not do a good job at someone, no one feels the disappointment more than they do.
